Morrow has NO control of the class. She's a joke. It's like being taught by a sub all year.

I honestly don't know why she's a teacher if she doesn't seem to have any patience, seems to hate teenagers, and usually has terrible emotional control. She sends students out of the class for expressing normal human behaviour (ex. holding pencils, tying hair), and she's extremely passive aggressive, condescending, hypocritical, and simply forces so many students to dislike her. To get on her good side, don't talk and don't move.

Having her changed my life. I definitely switched school and got a higher grade in English in grade 12 than in her grade 11 class. She made me think I was a stupid student as I got a 65 in her class. But I got a 95 in grade 12 and I didn't work as hard as I did in her class. I was always afraid of her. But if it wasn't forget I wudnt decide to change schools and live a better life and graduate with higher grades and get into my dream uni. So I thank her sort of.

I've never met such a hormonal, menopausal woman in my life. It's like she lives in the movie "beautiful mind" because she is genuinely fxcking twisted. Or maybe like the black swan, because she constantly imagines the students torturing her. She is the definition of mood swings. She is a drill sargient. If you are capable of displaying human emotions, contain every last drop of happiness before entering her classroom, and hold back the sadness because she'll ruin you.

She probably has some kind of mental disorder (bipolar?) so her temper tantrums aren't really a result of a character defect. She should get help and I hope she finds it soon. The school is very irresponsible for allowing her to behave this way towards her students and not intervening. Overall, not an mean-spirited person, just unstable.

I love her. Honestly, she's an amazing teacher. DO NOT GET ON HER BAD SIDE. She does have extremely bad days, so beware. Don't talk while she's talking, ever. Listen to her instructions, and do all your asignments to the best of your ability. If you listen to her and work hard, you will do fine. Lots of kids didn't do well because they didn't try. I had her for photography and I loved it. You learn so much and she really knows how to teach. MAKE HER LIKE YOU.

BIPOLAR TO THE MAX!!!!!! She's mentally ill, as previous students have mentioned. She takes out all of her emotions and home problems out on the kids. There is absolutely no respect for anyone, she always tells everyone to shut up. Psychopath.

Despite her teaching, she is a horrible teacher. She often leave class for more than 20 mins just to talk to another teacher..I forgot my new mug in her class once and when i came back to look for it. She has already thrown it in the garbage..really?

She can be tough, but it is possible to get a good grade. She doesn't do a lot of oral presentations or media. She actually focuses on writing and reading. She teaches very clearly and is informative. She dissects Shakespeare and novels very well if you have trouble understanding. Be forewarned that she has a lot of mood swings and is extremely strict in how the classroom functions. I believe she's a fair marker. Participate! It's a good sign if she remembers your name for the right reasons.

Ms. Mondrow is a great English teacher! She is very strict, her instructions are clear, she has very good handwriting, she is very helpful especially when it comes to writing. In order to be successful in her class I'd advise future students to behave properly in her class, don't be late and DO your Home WORK! She is definitely not the type of teacher you'd want to mess around with.

We didn't do anything all year, and thinking back, I can't remember a single thing I learned in her class. She might be nice at times but is also very irrational. She thinks she is the absolute athority on everything, and is quite condescending. I think she means well but she's really not a good teacher.
